UH Law School Foundation Speech
by Michael Fox
September is a busy month for speeches. First up is the University of Houston Law Foundation Employment Law Seminar. Spoke last Thursday and again next Thursday in Dallas. Actually will be switching times, but not topics, with Gregg Rosenberg. Talking about the impact of Sarbanes-Oxley on employers. Seemed to get a lot of interest Thursday, more notes than normal being taken. Not sure many have focused on the employment law aspects of Sarbanes-Oxley.
The new whistle blower cause of action is potentially a big issue for publicly traded companies, and their officers and employees, although of more general interest and perhaps trouble is the criminalization of whistle blowing. The potential impact and how we got that particular section of the Act are probably worth a post of their own.
